Nokia today unveiled the Lumia Icon, another high-end smartphone for its Windows Phone line-up that’s been built exclusively for Verizon customers in the United States.
From a hardware perspective, it’s not particularly original or memorable by Nokia’s standards. Available in black or silver, the Lumia Icon has a slightly boxy design with some sharper edges than we’re used to from the Finnish manufacturer.
The device has a 5-inch, 1080p display with an impressive 441 pixels-per-inch resoltuion, as well as a quad-core, 2.2 GHz Qualcomm Spadragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage. It’s powered by a 2420mAh batter and comes with one of Nokia’s 20-megapixel PureView cameras, which usually stand up well against similarly-specced Android rivals.
Nokia says the Lumia Icon will be available from February 20 for $199.99 with a two-year contract through Verizon Wireless.
